Video: 2018 Honda Civic Type R (FK8) review


The Honda Civic Type R FD2 generation that was officially sold in Malaysia a decade ago was the poster car for many teenage boys and with Honda Malaysia skipped the FN2R generation completely, the all-new FK8R marks the return of the mighty Type R in Malaysia and also the return of GC Mah in another episode of #isthiscar4u:

Powered by a K20C1 2.0-litre four-cylinder VTEC Turbo engine pushing out 310 hp and 400 Nm of twist. Drive is channelled to the front wheels via a six-speed close ratio manual transmission with Rev Match System allowing the Type R to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds all the way to the 272 km/h mark.

While the Civic Type R does not come with rear parking sensors it does hold the title of fastest front-wheel-drive production car on six racetracks around the world including the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Question is, would you have RM330k (OTR without insurance including SST) to spare?

He believes that the perfect remedy to Monday blues is a mixture of 4 wheels, clear roads and a pinch of twisty tarmac. A hot hatch is the icing on the cake.
